Facebook is the world’s second most popular site. Each day hundreds of millions of users log-on to Facebook creating huge traffic loads. To better understand how Facebook meets this challenge we analyzed how quickly Dotcom-Monitor’s Facebook Page fully loads in a browser from several worldwide locations. To acquire this data we used BrowserView Monitoring™, which was set to use an Internet Explorer browser, monitoring every 30 minutes for five days.

Results: As you can see, the Shanghai monitoring location’s load of the Dotcom-Monitor Facebook page was blocked by the “Great Firewall of China” resulting in a failure, the San Francisco monitoring location recorded the fastest load time at 1.74 sec., and the worldwide average was 4.453 seconds.
